Mexican postage stamp honoring the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (National Council of Science and Technology), which was founded in 1970. Equivalent to the National Science Foundation (United States), the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología is responsible for the promotion of scientific and technological activities, setting government policies for these matters, and granting scholarships for postgraduate studies.
This stamp was designed by Mexican painter Rufino del Carmen Arellanes Tamayo (1899-1991) in his signature style of figurative abstraction with surrealist influences.
